The school employs a trained nurse whose primary role is to support student learning by ensuring the health and safety of our students. The nurse is located in the health office in the Administration Building. Nurses are available from 7:15 am to 5:15 pm on school days.
The school nurses’ responsibilities include:
Providing acute, chronic and emergency care as per parents or doctors advice
Assessing student health status; health appraisals
Activities and education to promote health and safety
Identifying problems and making referrals
School/community/health care provider liaison
The signature of parents/legal guardians is required to provide consent for the school to seek medical assistance in the case of an emergency. It is our school policy to call a parent immediately if a child requires urgent medical assistance. In cases, when direct contact with a parent is not possible, ABA will transport the student to one of the following hospitals - Khoula, Muscat Private and/or Royal Hospital. The cost of any medical consultation or treatment is the responsibility of the parents, although any medication or treatment given by the school nurse is free of charge.
All parents of students enrolling in ABA are required to complete the Student Health Record and provide documented proof of immunizations.
Not sure which immunizations are needed. Check here.
